#JAB13 - got shortlisted for J.O.S.C.A.R.S.! #JAB13 - got shortlisted for J.O.S.C.A.R.S.!

This week was really a Jpositive one for us! Our guys came back to work at Bang2Joom with presents as promised! After an almost 5-hour debrief meeting, we quitted just to have lunch :)) So, being overdosed with positiveness and new fresh ideas, work at Bang2Joom started anew with a bright note. In the evening, when I was looking through my tweet feed, I found this tweet.


A click away and I was reading and finding some familiar extensions, websites nominated and...OMG, that's!!! Super excited and checking over and over again, I was feeling Jawesome to find our website nominated! So, the first thing was to alarm all Bang2Joom people that we are nominated for J.O.S.C.A.R.S. How cool is that?!
